The Random Ramblings of a disillusioned Law Student

 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in

Yep. So here I am finally starting a new epoch in my not so happening Life. Am finally entering into the mystical and magical realms of the blogosphere. And what a platform to share my blog with all my peers and contemporaries!

I say random ramblings because I'll randomly try to put things here, will scribble a lot of senseless rubbish with some senseful proses in between. Well if you are a good researcher you will get the gist of it! Hope so!

Disillusioned I say because I have no idea where I am going with my legal or for that matter my personal life. Have tried it all, living my personal life at the expense of my legal life, flunking exams, not interning, booze,fag,bikes and of course girls. 

Have tried to balance both which sadly resulted in a lethargic monotonous schedule which I couldn't keep up with. Have tried to kill my personal life, have slogged for days and days surviving on coffee and chocolate cookies, have strained my eyes staring to the computer screen that at one time I was sure my eyeballs were either going to burst or pop out. Have researched and read and drafted arguments related to Torts, Constitituional Law, IPR, that for quite some time I was under the impression that I had mastered atleast one of the subjects, which very well the judge couldn't agree less on. So I have truly and in all it's entirety failed inl all the three lifestyles. 

And believe me I've tried and tasted it all. Those uncalled for fights, those 17 shots of the not so soothing liquid, the throbbing pain, the disprin and coffee which followed later, to the Best researcher, orator, to being a normal student with no purpose whatsoever.

So where do I stand right now? well let's see. Three and a half years down the drain, current status- wandering, scribbling commenting on blogs when after around five hours have got an exam to write. But that's not the point I want to make.

 I have no idea what I'm going to do with my life. Sure will get a job, no issues with that, my C.V. and contacts are not that bad.  But what will the job change? I'll still keep on lamenting & ruminating & brooding about my life. Is this what I want from my life? No.

So if you do not won't to end up like me or like some other loser. Go get your Life straight. Figure out what you want to do with your life. Intern, research, try to find the field in which you are interested and once you find it don't let it go. 

Do what your heart says, but never backtrack. You might fail at times but remember the success achieved will bring only more happiness. 

As much as I wish to continue this rambling I will have to call it off, the phone is continuously pestering me, will have to take the call.

Will continue my ramblings later based on your views, reviews. Just hope that this piece doesn't get lost in the vast blogosphere!
